Hi, I have not been on here for a while.
My TBI was in September 2012, which seems a long time ago now. I was initially told it was reasonably minor (in hospital 9 days??) and that there would be no lasting effects. It was later found that I had a Right frontal lobe contusion of about 3.5cm and permanent hearing loss although this was due to the skull fracture rather than the Brain Injury. Almost 2 1/2 years on, I am still suffering from some short-term memory losses, light confusion, headaches and balance problems. I recently managed to get another neurologist to see me who suggested that I could still be suffering from "Post Concussion syndrome". This seems strange after such a long time, so I was wondering if anyone could advise if this could be the case. He also suggested that the best treatment would be Psycho-Therapy and referred this to my GP. My GP has later refused to refer me instructing that I should increase the painkillers (which I haven't since they make me drowsy). Does anyone know what is involved which psycho therapy?
